EDS – Navy Marine Corps Intranet Program

NMCI-StrikeForceThe EDS-Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) is a comprehensive, enterprise-wide initiative that gives the Navy and Marine Corps secure universal access to integrated voice, video, and data communications during war. It provides pier-side connectivity to Navy vessels in port, and links more than 360,000 desktops across the United States in addition to sites in Puerto Rico, Iceland, and Cuba.

Critical Infrastructure Support

As one of NMCI’s primary Small Business Teaming Partners for the EDS Strike Force, DTSI was a key source for critical infrastructure support, which included projects ranging across the entire NMCI program such as: transition, enterprise-wide support (network operation centers and help desk), and desk-side support.  

The EDS-DTSI Desktop Validation project required team members to record and validate the hardware and software on the desktop and/or laptop for each individual computer user.  Validation consisted of a Desktop assessment that inventoried and captured existing desktop computer equipment configurations and software applications.  It thus provided, an ’Environmental Assessment’ that accurately identified the office environment within a facility.

Desk-Side Support for Project Rollout

As part of the NMCI rollout to Navy personnel, DTSI provides site support to managers, ensuring a seamless transition from the pre-NMCI operational environment to the NMCI environment without impacting operations. The desk-side support provided by DTSI personnel included the installation of hardware, software, and peripherals to the network. DTSI personnel also trained users and administered the Network Operating System (NOS), Network Directory Services (NDS), and Network File Servers.

DTSI’s demonstrated ability to respond quickly and successfully to NMCI’s diverse requirements was a major factor in obtaining multiple NMCI ’Strike Force’ task orders from the customer. The overall period of performance for this support was 15 months.
